Kristine Froseth’s star is only burning brighter. While she may have kicked off her career as a poster child for popular Netflix productions, the Norwegian-American actor and Vogue Scandinavia’s latest digital cover star’s burgeoning success is only growing, with the actor nabbing coveted roles in smash hit series like Looking for Alaska and The Buccaneers, the latter of which the actor will soon start begin filming for a the second season. A true chameleon on the screen, Froseth's resume proves she can harness just about any role with finesse.

The Buccaneers (2023)

One of Froseth’s latest (and ongoing) projects is the gripping Apple TV period drama, The Buccaneers, which had us glued to our screens when its first season aired last year. Portraying the free-spirited, tomboyish wealthy American Nan St. George, who, along with her other new-money pals, arrives in 1870s England in the hopes of finding rich husbands, Froseth’s character takes us on a wild ride filled with drama, romance, and stunning costumes. With the thrilling cliffhanger we were left with after season one, we eagerly await our favourite corseted girl’s return to the small screen, which online speculators guess will likely happen early next year.

Sharp Stick (2022)

Lena Dunham’s witty and quirky comedy Sharp Stick, starring Froseth as the tender-hearted and pure Sarah Jo, garnered praise for its refreshing take on themes like body positivity, sexuality, womanhood, and family dynamics. Set on the outskirts of Hollywood, the film centres around 26-year-old Sarah Jo as she embarks on a romantic journey with her older employer, Josh (Jon Bernthal). What follows are important lessons learned as Sarah Jo navigates the complexities of lust, loss, and empowerment, culminating in a powerful story of sexual awakening. As usual, Froseth delivers a compelling performance, captivating us with Sarah Jo’s irresistible charm.

How to Blow Up a Pipeline (2022)

In the 2022 action film How to Blow Up a Pipeline, we see Froseth taking on the role of adventurous and brave Rowan, who, together with her boyfriend Logan (Lucas Gage) join in on a crew of environmental activists planning on disrupting an oil pipeline in Texas. However, as the group progresses with their ambitious plan, they encounter numerous obstacles that challenge their resolve. To top it all off, Rowan might not be the person some of her new friends thought she was…

Birds of Paradise (2021)

When Froseth landed the lead role of Marine Elise Durand in the Amazon Original drama film Birds of Paradise, she was given three months to morph into a professional ballerina. Given Froseth’s lack of prior experience in dance, it was undoubtedly a challenge. However, Froseth excelled in her part, delivering a dreamy and spellbinding performance. A must-watch, consider Birds of Paradise – which follows the lives of two young girls, Marine and Kate (played by Diana Silvers), at an elite Parisian ballet academy – a tad lighter in comparison to other famed ballet titles like Black Swan.

Looking for Alaska (2019)

The series that solidified Froseth’s status as an international star, Looking for Alaska marks a pivotal moment in the actor’s career. Based on the best-selling novel of the same name by John Green, the Hulu show was brought to life on the small screen by Josh Schwartz, the mastermind behind blockbuster shows like The O.C. and Gossip Girl. Froseth was cast as the titular character, Alaska Young, an enigmatic and moody girl who instantly captures the heart of Miles Halter (Charlie Plummer) upon their first encounter in Alabama – despite Alaska having a long-distance boyfriend. Nevertheless, the two become friends, and Alaska draws Miles into her complex world, hinting at the possibility of romance between them.

The Society (2019)

Netflix’s mystery teen drama show The Society was unfortunately cut short after one season due to the pandemic. Nevertheless, it remains among our favourite Froseth appearances. The series centres around a group of teenagers who one day find themselves mysteriously abandoned in their hometown, which soon turns into an eerie place where strange things begin to take place. To survive, the teens have to create a new society of their own, posing a great challenge for the group. Froseth scored one of the lead roles in the series, portraying Kelly Aldrich, a kind and compassionate young woman, hailed as the unsung hero of the series.

Apostle (2018)

In Netflix’s Apostle, Froseth showcased her acting chops in the sinister horror flick that follows a drifter named Thomas (Dan Stevens) on a daring mission to save his sister from a wicked religious cult residing on a secluded Welsh island. Upon arriving at the ominous place, Thomas meets Ffion (Froseth), the daughter of one of the evil men on the island. With all the elements you’d expect from a horror movie – dead bodies, sacrifices, blood, and a spine-chilling atmosphere – it’s safe to say happy endings don’t lie ahead.

Sierra Burgess is a Loser (2018)

The film that initially put Froseth on the map, Netflix’s teen drama Sierra Burgess is a Loser dives into an electrifying high school romance, spiced up with an unexpected twist as a wrong-number text leads to a love affair between a smart but unpopular girl, Sierra (Shannon Purser), and a kind jock, Jamey (Noah Centineo), who’s under the impression that he’s chatting with Veronica (Froseth), a beautiful but stuck-up cheerleader. Typical teen drama tangles and conflicts ensue, resulting in Veronica making friends with Sierra under the premise of coaching her with her texting with Jamey. The girls become even closer, and it’s only a matter of time before their secret is revealed.
